I read that ssd are not good for long term storage. That they are great to have read/write daily but to let sit isn't ideal. Also when they fail it is usually without warning and less likely to recover data compared to hdd's.
I love my ssd for internal but stayed away from them for portable storing family photo and long term backups for this reason.
I believe daily use is great, but they need to be used and not stored away.

It's been this price for a while now. I would personally get the 500 GB for $150.

Nobody buys portable SSD's for storing files and letting them sit there. You buy them if you're a professional that needs to edit or work on media on the go.

Didn't think that was still around but I guess they're using these to get rid of it (not a bad idea).
